"Mother Nature's Son" as written by John Winston Lennon and Paul James Mccartney....
Born a poor young country boy
Mother Nature's son
All day long I'm sitting singing songs for everyone.

Sit beside a mountain stream
See her waters rise
Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies.

Find me in my field of grass
Mother Nature's son
Swaying daisies sing a lazy song beneath the sun.

Mother Nature's son.

    General Commentthis song was written by paul in while in india after hearing a lecture by the Maharishi Yogi. John also wrote a song with a similar subject, but Paul's was picked for the white album.

    General Commenti love this song. its so close to nature and makes me think about enjoying just BEing. i imagine sitting in a field and noticing every little thing - the bugs, the leaves, the clouds. it reminds me to appreciate the little things in life.

    General CommentThis song means so much to me, I can't believe it only has a few postings. When life seems so hectic, this song takes me to a place that I hope to sometime be - a place where there is a peacefulness and a oneness with nature.
